Should we make dark mode default? Upvote for yes, downvote for no

What should we code?

I'd love to see more multiplayer game. We played @kaldisberzins game a lot but I'd like to see more games we can play together as a community. If they have social elements like chatting and not just shooting at each other then all the better!

@pfunk we're on this. Multiplayer is still in beta and we're iterating on it. But let me tell you we plan to make it Multiplayer at heart!!

How Did YOU Find Repl.it
posted to Ask by PYer

Back in school I was getting interested in learning more programming languages. But I was discouraged because I didn't have a laptop and was always on the move (between home, school, and job) and every time I had an hour to code a little I have to spend most of it installing or troubleshooting compilers, IDEs, libraries, etc.

So I discovered the idea behind Repl.it -- an instant & portable programming environment for any language I want to learn. I ended up being the one to code it into existence but I might as well have found it if it existed before that.

I never thought I'd cry playing a game. But this is different. After being on top of the world with my run button being green I was absolutely shattered. I was heartbroken and in disbelief. I lost all meaning. I was staring into the abyss.

I'm not sure if I'll ever recover but I have a feeling that what Empty takes Empty gives back. I'm holding hope that one day I'll see the deep wisdom and optimism hidden behind the darkness and nihilism on the surface.

Pray for me comrades. Pray for me.

Is there a way to report repls?

We took this down and many many others. We're also building better tools for moderation and detection. Thanks!

@TheDrone7 App of the Week is not about new stuff, it's about things that are deployed and people are using. We look at traffic and how people are using it.

If you make something that people are using we'll highlight it, regardless of how new or old is it.

So cool to see React Native used on Repl.it. I was one of the original creators -- open source for the win ✌️

Repl.it's birthday?
posted to Ask

I started working on the concept behind Repl.it in 2009/2010 and released the first version on Hackernews in September 2011. It did really well but then I got a job at Codecademy doing a similar thing so I stopped working on it. In April 2016 we picked it up again and made it better and rereleased it.

I guess the technical birthday is when we incorporated the company, April 15, 2016.

I'll start: my name is Amjad Masad and I'm CEO at Repl.it. I love programming, and I come to work every day to make it easy for everyone to learn how to code and to build awesome apps and programs.

I also code for fun and you could find me posting some of my programs here on this forum.

(Question for staff or mods) How hard would it be to add community generated syntax highlighting?
posted to Ask by SPQR

So here is the deal: This summer we're dedicating a big portion of our energy to opening up the platform for various kinds of contributions:

  1. APIs: Both on the code execution side and the repl creation and multiplayer sides.
  2. Plugins: Allow users to build IDE plugins.
  3. IDE Theming: Allow people to create different themes for the IDE and syntax highlighting. n
  4. Open source: We're open sourcing a big part of our language toolchain so that anyone can improve or add on our interpreter/compiler support.

It's going to be lit.

And I also hope to document the development process a bit more to help Replers with similarly ambitious projects in mind who might be struggling to get started.

@samdevz this sounds great. Looking forward to it.

hey @samdevz -- this is amazing! Congrats :)

I noticed that you had to include the packages in your project, this maybe because of a bug in our packager in Django. That's now fixed and you can go ahead and simply use requirements.txt.

If you have any feedback or bug reports please let me know.

Nice! But how do I decrypt it? It'd be great if I can do it with your app as well.

This is really cool. It would be awesome if there is a way to save the user program. You can have a save button that simply base64 encodes the program and puts it in the URL.
